After I start my car and disengage the handbrake, the handbrake light is dimly lit (should be off). At the same time, my headlights, windshield wipers, rear wipers and window heating, and heating vents...


what you described is symptoms of a bad ignition switch, when you are moving the key around to find a good spot it is internally moving the contacts until they catch a good spot, this happens when they get worn.

How to find out has caused my headlights and windshield wipers to come on together from a 2003 Dodge Neon automobile?


Sounds like a wiring harness problem. Sometimes your wires will get very hot and melt themselves together. Pop your hood on your car and look at the corner closest to the drivers corner under the hood. A patch of wires should come out. check them for any melted wires. Also look under the dash of your car for any melted wires.

My windshield wipers suddenly quit working.


First check the fuse, if the fuse is good check to see if you are getting power at the wiper motor. Power at the motor means bad motor, no power is either the switch or wiring.

Driver's headlight is dim; wipers only work if headlight is off


Sounds like the jolt from the barrier has caused a bad ground to occur. Look for a bad ground wire around the left headlamp in or around the headlight bucket.
Tighten or replace the bad ground wire. A poor contact will cause the headlight to light dimly.

Headlights, cab lights, and sterio won't work


Get under the hood and start shaking the wire harnesses, while you have someone sit in the truck waiting for things to flicker on and off. Chances are good that you have a corroded connection that supplies quite a few gadgets. Also check the terminals coming off the battery, and any smaller wires attached to them. These frequently corrode faster than the larger wires. By the way, shaking the harnesses...is called, " THE WIGGLE TEST". Good luck. Chip

Headlight wiper


They shouldn't - they only work when you do a wash/wipe.
